Apex Legends Rampart artwork

[Update]: Apex Legends' Season 11 will be adding Titanfall 2's Ash, a brand new tropical map, and more.

Despite being one of the more flavorful characters, Rampart has unfortunately been at the very bottom in terms of pickrate for a very long time now. This is partly due to her static defenses being easily circumvented, and partly because her ultimate often leaves her completely exposed to any sort of counter-attack.

So in order to address this little problem Respawn has now released a brand new update that's all about Rampart. Her ultimate has been buffed and can now be carried around, as well as fired on the move, while the World's Edge map has received a new location by the name of Big Maude. As you would expect given Rampart's personality, Big Maude is actually a gigantic tank with its very own paintball course, because of course it is!

Just to make things even sweeter for Rampart, the update has also brought in her very own heirloom weapon - a colorful wrench that also serves as a candy dispenser. While the weapon is certainly lovely to look at, the price tag is once again absolutely insane, so unless you really want the rest of the skins in the collection event I wouldn't recommend opening your wallet for it.

As for what exactly all of this looks like in actual gameplay, that you can find out through the recently posted trailer. Have a gander:

If you prefer the written word, however, you can also read more about the finer details of the update, as well as check out the full patch notes, over at the Apex Legends website. Have fun!
